International Course Training on strategies to foster solutions of undiagnosed rare disease cases

The International Course “Training on strategies to foster solutions of undiagnosed rare disease cases” is a part of a series of training activities proposed by the European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases (EJP RD). EJP RD is a European Commission funded project (Grant Agreement No 825575, 2019 – 2023) with the goal to create a comprehensive, sustainable ecosystem allowing a virtuous circle between research, care and medical innovation.

The course is endorsed by ICORD and will take place on 11-13 April 2022 online.

 The Course is made up of 3 days of training organized by Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS) in close collaboration with EJP RD Task partners [EKUT, LBG (LBI-RUD), ACU/ACURARE, ISCIII, INSERM (AMU), FTELE, UMCG, IMAGINE, CNAG-CRG, IPCZD (CMHI).

The course is endorsed by the International Conference of Rare Diseases and Orphan Drugs, [ICORD] and is also endorsed and taught by selected members of the Undiagnosed Diseases Network International [UDNI] Board of Directors.

Several initiatives have been undertaken at national and international level for undiagnosed rare diseases aimed at identifying clinical pathways and innovative methods to reach diagnosis. This course will illustrate methodologies and tools already used internationally and will provide participants with useful examples for the resolution of undiagnosed cases.

The course will provide participants, through the presentation of sample use cases that have long eluded diagnosis, with useful tools, instruments and knowledge on novel strategies to foster solutions of undiagnosed RD cases. Moreover, the course will facilitate networking among professionals involved in undiagnosed rare conditions.
